Unconfirmed reports say that the gorgeous Bollywood actress has bagged a new contract to act in a movie that offered her Rs 10 crores as her acting fees. If the report is true she beats the currently highest paid actress Aishwarya Rai, who is being paid Rs 6 crores for her role in under-production the Tamil movie Endhiran (Robot) opposite the veteran Tamil hero and the idol of millions, Rajani Kanth. However, it is good news, especially because Bollywood did not have much of box office hits this year and the global recession seems to have an effect on producers, and this years' disputes between producers and multiplex owners delayed the release of many movies that had to be released on later dates, months after they were to be released. This results in cashes in releasing dates and many movies lost heavily. Industry analysts say that the total loss to the film industry is anything around Rs 500 crores. Under this background, getting a contract worth Rs ten crores for a movie is commendable. But it is no wonder, as Kareena has many top recent hits to her credit.
